Decsions...Decsions HELP?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
should i get the sr-2 mother board with 2 xeons or a different motherboard with the i7 2600k
should i get 2 590's (possibly 3 if compatible) or 4 580's take into account that if i get the sr-2 i will have atleast one pci slot missing. aslo keep in mind that the 590 is a dual gpu so is it sli with one card?

You must have some money..

I would go for the Asus WS (up to 3x 580) and then get watercooled quad 580s. SO thats useing the i5 2600k or i7 2500k (if you aint useing anything that can utilise heyperthreading then the i7 is a waste of time). Performance in games is many down to graphics cards so thats the best place to spend the money.

Heres the MOBO http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...specifications

Quads are ideal for games these days. The 2500k is absolutely one of the best.
